Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 450 degrees F (230 degrees C).

  • Place oxtail in a baking dish and sprinkle seasoned salt over oxtail.

  • Roast oxtail in a baking dish until well-browned, about 40 minutes. Remove from oven, reserving any drippings in baking dish.

  • Heat beef broth, cabbage, potatoes, tomatoes, carrots, onion, orange juice, lime juice, garlic, bouillon, cumin, red pepper, bay leaves, salt, and black pepper together over medium heat in a large stockpot. Add oxtail and reserved drippings to soup; pour in water to fill stockpot halfway.

  • Simmer soup, stirring occasionally, until vegetables are easily pierced with a fork, 30 to 40 minutes. Garnish with cilantro.

Cook's Notes:

Using fresh vegetables in this soup is highly recommended.


Be sure to cook the oxtail before you add it to the soup or the meat will turn out tough.
